This is fun – the OC Register mentioned a great, unique event to check out in Costa Mesa this weekend that’s sure to be loads of fun. Believe it or not, there will be snow dogs racing through Fairview Park Saturday, Jan. 9 from 8am-11am. The event, dubbed the “(Not So) Great Serum Run,” will give Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamuts, Dobermans, German Shepherds, and more, a chance to their companions through the trails. It’s sort of a mock take on the Great Serum Run of 1925, which took place in the wilds of Alaska. Thanks so much to Rachel Reyes, a Costa Mesa resident who started the snow dog group urbanmushing.com in 2005 and who organized this event.

Residents of Costa Mesa are lucky that there are so many entertaining events and activities to do here. If you can’t make it this Saturday for the competition, you can always track the Huskies down on any given weekend when dog owners from Southern California gather with their dogs and blaze through the trails. And if you happen to own a sled dog and want to partake in the fun then this is the group for you!
Fairview Park is such a beautiful spot adjacent to the Mesa Verde section of Costa Mesa right over by Estancia High School. It’s undergone some recent renovations and is a great place to enjoy nature paths, plant life, and ocean views. The snow dog race is just another great reason to head over to Fairview Park and enjoy the recreational options that the City of Costa Mesa offers its residents.
Costa Mesa is full of parks and recreational areas and today we’re highlighting Fairview Park. Recent improvements to the park have been made and now it’s time for the community to take a firsthand look during a guided tour that will be held this weekend on Saturday, October 17 at 9am (it will last about 90 minutes). Afterward, there will also be a brief ceremony to celebrate the Fairview Park Friends Committee and uncover a dog/human bi-level drinking fountain, which was paid for by the committee’s fundraising efforts. Feel free to bring the family – the weather is going to be gorgeous!
Since Fairview Park is a large area of our community and a landmark in Mesa Verde, let’s take a look at its history. You may have seen the signs around the neighborhood that say Fairview Park est. 1500 B.C.
Costa Mesa Historical Marker
Yes, it’s true, researchers have been able to trace human occupation of the site back to 1500 B.C. In the 1700s the Spanish developed the area and built the Estancia Adobe, which remains today.

Following that the land was used for agricultural purposes and remained undeveloped. In 1994 the park was officially recognized by the City of Costa Mesa as an area that would preserve Costa Mesa’s need for public space, including wildlife and nature trails.
Ever since, residents of Costa Mesa have enjoyed the beauty and scenery of Fairview Park. It’s a wonderful place to go for a walk or ride a bike on the trails. There’s also a picnic area and even an area where kite flying and model airplane groups can hold meetings. The park provides Mesa Verde residents and the City of Costa Mesa with a fantastic recreational spot.
Preserving the environment is important and it does affect the quality of life that a community provides, which is a big factor among homebuyers as they consider Costa Mesa real estate. Mesa Verde is so fortunate to have so much recreational space. Thanks to the efforts of the Fairview Park Friends Committee the park is able to enjoy some improvements that will increase the desirability of the park for Costa Mesa residents today and well into the future.
